2009 Past Projects (no longer available for viewing)
Botanizing on the Asphalt – Nina Bovasso (Hudson River Park)
BravinLee programs' presentation of Botanizing on the Asphalt covers 400 feet of concrete jersey barriers at Hudson River Park, creating a lush, wild landscape. Nina Bovasso's signature flowers and dense colorful imagery have been printed onto a 3M graphic film that adheres to textured surfaces using heat and pressure. Passersby can view the intense and euphoric explosions of color and form along the West Street Bikeway with the Hudson River serving as a spectacular backdrop.
Poster Project at 50 Trinity – Ellen Berkenblit
In her piece, Poster Project at 50 Trinity, Ellen Berkenblit presents a series of six new ink and graphite drawings which have been enlarged and printed on a vinyl banner to cover the construction barricade at Trinity Place and Rector Street. Blown up to nearly 7 feet high, these images allow one to be immersed in the elegance of Berkenblit's lines and brushstrokes and to glimpse the intricacies of her graphite underdrawings. Featuring the graceful female protagonist who frequently appears in Berkenblit's work along with some of her signature animals, the drawings are sequenced and repeated, like the stills in a black and white silent film from the 1920's.
Rainbow Conversation – Rachel Hayes
Rainbow Conversation, courtesy of BravinLee programs, transforms 34 wire fences that surround the Louise Nevelson Plaza construction site into a sensual and vibrant experience with a colorful installation of sewn stripes of opaque and sheer fabrics. Artist Rachel Hayes has built an experimental and multi-hued landscape with line, light and movement—additional pieces have been sewn to intentionally flutter in the wind, beckoning the viewer to move around the site and to enjoy the view.
